I spent this afternoon and evening in the small village of Horbling in Lincolnshire, on my uncle’s farm / plant nursery. He was having his annual bonfire party with friends and family, with fireworks and BBQ etc. I spent a lot of the evening experimenting with different lighting techniques, taking photographs mainly of the fire itself but also some painting with light ideas and firework pictures. The above image is my favourite firework shot. Personally, I don’t feel it is quite as impressive as the series I managed to capture from the Blackpool Fireworks Competition but I am still happy enough with this image to share it with you. Amateur fireworks are much harder to photograph than professional displays.
